MAMBA webinar series. Webinar #2: Breaking the vicious circle with successful mobility and accessibility solutions – Stories from MAMBA and beyond
Due to the latest disruptions caused by the spread of COVID-19, MAMBA project has decided to postpone the Final Conference until September 2020 and change its format into a three-part digital event.
We hope you will join us for the “No future for rural Europe? Breaking the vicious circle with successful mobility and accessibility ideas” conference, which we will hold as a series of webinars on the 3, 10 and 17 September 2020, 10:00-11:30 CET.
10 September, 10:00 CET
The second webinar will bring to your attention several success stories from the area of rural mobility, presented by MAMBA and similar projects and initiatives. Four inspiring stories from different parts of Europe will showcase how they succeeded in making their region a better place. The webinar will also feature the launch of MAMBA’s brand new publication, “Everybody’s Guide to Collaborative Mobility and Accessibility Solutions in Rural Areas”. If you are a committed citizen or represent an NGO or a local public authority and want to tackle the mobility challenges in your region, then this manual is made for you. Join our webinar for the full story.
We promise three webinars full of exciting stories, insightful discussions and inspiring speakers!

About the project
“Almost two years ago the bus stopped driving in our area, and since then there are difficulties to get to the county centre.” This quote belongs to a local of the Mazsalaca County, in Latvia, but it might as well belong to any other resident living in one of Europe’s remote, rural areas.
With decreasing and ageing populations in many rural areas in the Baltic Sea Region, it is becoming increasingly challenging to keep up public transport and other services that depend on mobility, such as home care or home deliveries. This reduced accessibility of services impacts the life quality of people living outside urban centres. For the past three years, MAMBA project has been trying to meet this challenge by introducing Rural Mobility Solutions in areas that have been affected by the lack of public transport opportunities.
